At the film's 32:31 mark, the digital clock behind Joe's mother reads, "9:08:19." At 33:03, after about another thirty seconds of dialogue, the clock reads, "9:08:25," although obviously more than six seconds have passed. See more »

This movie deserves much more praise than it's getting...
11 November 2016 | by SanclerSee all my reviews

How does this have such an average to low rating, as opposed to most other overly-polished "comedies"? Do people not get the dark humor of Operator, is that it?

One of the things I personally value most in any release (whether it's movies, music or whatever), is originality. Originality is definitely something Operator has, and at the same time pretty contemporary. It also has very pronounced and vivid characters, without being too try-hard. The main character manages to display autism almost perfectly. All that, on (from the looks of it) a pretty low budget.

This movie deserves much more praise than it's getting.
